Feature début by theatre director Theu Boermans based on a play by Gustav Ernst. The film looks at the staff of a small family firm in gardening and do-it-yourself goods. The company is located in a small industrial town deep in the countryside. The whole economy of the town is dependent on a huge wire factory. When the factory goes bankrupt, chaos is the inevitable result. The inhabitants move away en masse from the town, which is taken over by weeds. The end of the factory also heralds the end of the small family firm. The tension between the main characters has reached a peak. Everyone prevents everyone else from leaving the warehouse. The situation is doomed to end in an huge explosion that no one will survive.
